Drew DeArmond Talks Alabama’s Offensive Line and Saban’s Job Offer
Subscribe to Tide 102.9 on
Asking Coach Nick Saban a question at a press conference has to be like having stage fright and be expected to do a public speech in front of a large audience.
You can never be afraid to ask Alabama’s head football coach a question because part of your job as a journalist is to get answers to questions everyone wants to know.
One question Alabama fans are asking themselves after two games watching the Crimson Tide to start this 2017 season is about the offensive line unit. It is a good thing quaterback Jalen Hurts has the ability to run the ball and escape the pocket because the offensive line unit has struggled to protect there play caller under center in the first two games.
Of course most fans want to ask Coach Saban directly what he thinks about the offensive line, so the reporters have to answer the call.
After the Crimson Tide’s 41-10 victory over the Fresno State Bulldogs this past Saturday, 97.7 ESPN The Zone reporter Drew DeArmond asked Saban about the offensive line play and Coach Saban in a jokingly matter has a response to reporters who he thinks “know it all.”

In the video above the article, DeArmond joined The Game with Ryan Fowler to address the question he asked Saban and as further elaborate how the offensive lineman has fared this season.
Whether it’s a negative or positive response, you never know how Coach Saban will answer your question, but if he chooses to answer yours like this, it may go viral. If Alabama offers DeArmond the right perks, maybe he’ll consider making a change in his career direction and we could see him on the sideline with the boys in the trenches.
